§ Mr. Waterson
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what plans he has to establish an advisory body in respect of the provisions of the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Bill; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir George Young
I have announced that the Government are prepared to contribute, for up to three years, towards the cost of a body giving advice on the leasehold reform provisions of the Bill. The Leasehold Reform Co-ordinating Committee has prepared a scheme for an advisory agency and is presently seeking to attract funding from various professional bodies and other organisations.
